to join us on tv today. >> gold coins. you know what else? they have chocolate in the middle. >> the great scandal of 2010. thank you, keith. >>> thanks to you at home for staying with us for the next hour. we begin tonight with the great unveiling. house republicans held their bik big take your jacket off photo op today to prevent their agenda for this election year. it was a bit of a flop. not in terms of the photo-op. the photo-op looks awesome. the blue shirts, it's amazing. no problem there. but the reception it received, that greeted it upon arrival was blunt and not positive. their big election year pledge was called, drek and pablum and full of glaring contradictions. also, milquetoast. those were things from people on the right. those terms were from the most popular, heavily trafficked red wing blog, red state and for the club for growth. if you are in the business of trying to figure out what might happen if republicans win the elections, the most important thing to note is that the pledge is of very little help for mapping out the impact on the country if all these republicans
. >> thank you, keith. appreciate it. >>> thanks to you for staying with us at home for the next hour. after a day or so of marching out of step and hath each other for it, republicans today got in line. right behind their senate candidate in delaware, christine o'donnell. which means they are plating their political trough with christine o'donnell just as the country is learning lots, lots, lots, lots, lots more about christine o'donnell. >> there's also the issue of murder with vincent foster. >> we'll also tonight have more of my exclusive interview with the vice president of the united states, joseph biden. and there is a political mailer out there that smells like garbage. it has been sent to republican voters. i have a theory it may be art. that's coming up all this hour. >>> we begin with the senate candidate who appears to be following the same trajectory that sarah palin went through in 2008. that trajectory from more or less profound obscuity to instant nationwide stardom. i'm speaking of christine o'donnell from delaware. she's scheduled for her first high-profile right wing event
that he is amassing them to use against our friends, against our allies, and against us. >> iraq's weapons of mass destruction are controlled by a murderous tyrant, who has already used chemical weapons to kill thousands of people. >> we know he's been absolutely devoted to trying to acquire nuclear weapons. >> saddam hussein has and is amassing weapons of mass destruction to use against america. that, of course, turned out to be bullpucky as well. leading bush administration war proponent paul wolfowitz conceded later that it was mostly for political convenience that the bush administration decided to go with the whole w.m.d. argument in the early stages of the war. speaking from the white house briefing room on april 10th, 2003, press secretary ari fleischer said this. make to mistake, as i said earlier, we have high confidence that they have weapons of mass destruction. that is what this war was about and is about. no, it isn't. and no, it wasn't. ever. once the war was well under way, even the administration was forced to concede, reluctantly, that there weren't weapons of mass destruc
stated, there is no doubt that iran has weapons of mass destruction and that he is planning on using them against our friends, are allies, and against us. >> they are controlled by a murderous tyrant who has already used chemical weapons to kill thousands of people. >> suddam hussein has and used mass destruction weapons against america. that, of course, has turned out to be bull puck key as well. press secretary said this. make no mistake, as i said earlier, we have high confidence that they have weapons of mass destruction. that is what this war was about and is about. no it isn't and no it wasn't ever. even the bush administration was forced to concede reluctantly that there were not weapons of mass destruction where upon the president decided to make it into a joke. >> no weapons over there. maybe under here. >> that was just as hilarious at the time as it still is today, with more than 4,400 american lives to bolster the belly laughs. ultimately, none of the things our government, at the time, told us were the reasons we had to start a war in iraq were true. opponents of the war said
, senator. >> major mike almy joins us live. >>> and the senator standing for reelection by write-in scores a sad own goal against her own campaign. "the rachel maddow show" starts right now. >>> today in the united states senate, language in the defense authorization bill that would let the military "don't ask, don't tell" fell to defeat. senate republicans, in fact, took the historic step of filibustering the entire defense authorization bill in order to maintain the "don't ask, don't tell" policy. they would not even allow debate on the defense bill because it included that language to let the military repeal its own policy on keeping gay people out of the military. and so we don't have a bill to fund the military this year. at least so far. and the "don't ask, don't tell" policy lives. what happens next? well, here is a clue. when i interviewed vice president joe biden less than a week ago, i asked him why if the administration was so opposed to "don't ask, don't tell," why were they still implementing it? why were they still discharging openly gay members of the u.s. military now that
to you at home for staying with us for the next hour. for the next hour in which we shall celebrate the launch of lawrence o'donnell's new show which is tonight right after this hour. we shall celebrate the arrival of our new desk which inexplicably has something to do with the start of lawrence's new show with you i'm not sure what. i'm very excite body my new desk. we shall also celebrate the return of barack hussein obama. he is back in talking points just in case any republicans previous efforts to convince you he is secretly foreign did not work on you, they're going to give it one more shot. that's all to come over the course of the hour. >>> but we begin tonight by putting a giant asterisk on the well worn political truism that all politics is local. the big decision democrats had to make about this year's elections was whether or not they would try to run this year's elections as a national campaign, whether they were going to try to run as democrats versus republicans or whether they were going to try to block out everything happening at the national level and, instead, hop
. >> good evening, keith. thank you for that. thanks to you at home for staying with us for the next hour. plenty of chaos to sort out from this day of news and not just the hardcore book burning wing nuttery chaos coming out of florida. there's also the republican senate primary now newly starring sarah palin and a tea party candidate who says that abstinence is not enough. we all must always abstain from ourselves. as well if you know what i mean and one of the most political fake campaigns and the rachel maddow staff vote for the most unhinged campaign speech and it had a lot of competition. that's coming up this hour. we begin with the extremist christian pastor in florida who was planning to commemorate the anniversary of 9/11 by burning copies of the koran. he has now changed his plans twice. pastor claimed in a press conference this afternoon he was canceling his koran burning because the imam behind the planned islam cultural center in downtown manhattan agreed to move the project away from the hollow grounds of the orlando burlington court factcy building, blocks away from the wo
for staying with us for the next really busy hour. we are starting tonight with an exclusive report. an exclusive report about politics and retaliation. and a politician who was supposed to be a rising star in the republican party, apparently running on fear. fear of exposure. it starts with the issue of illegal immigration. you can tell by the sheer volume of anti-immigrant politicking in the country right now, the illegal immigration problem must really be exploding. that is true if by exploding you mean that it is down 67%. the pugh hispanic center which is widely considered to be the most authoritative source of numbers has release ad new report saying in the last decade, the number illegal immigrants sgroogs the united states has dropped by two-thirds. so the sudden up take in yelling about illegal immigration, blaming immigrants for everything from obama being elected to swine flu to kidnapping the lindenberg baby, that's not happening because illegal immigration is getting worse. it is actually getting better. the up take in immigration stuff is not really about immigration a
of this coming, but nobody in america did. thank you, keith. and thanks to you at home for staying with us for the next hour. i'm not saying that everyone will remember where he or she was when christine o'donnell won the republican nomination for senate from delaware, but i will remember where i was. i was here on msnbc 24 hours ago. and in the wake of that ever lasting gobsmacker, i traveled from our home studios in new york here to washington, d.c. for the rare opportunity to sit down with the man who for a very long time -- a long, long, long time -- held the senate seat that christine o'donnell now wants. tonight my sit-down with vice president joe biden. the vice president had plenty to say about the delaware senate race. a pretty bold assessment of the possible repeal of don't ask, don't tell. and some very direct talk for the democratic base. >> one reason i want to be on your show is to tell the progressives out there, you know, get in gear, man. >> having just given away why the vice president would agree to spend a good part of his day with me today. we will get to the rest of w
, chuck could have lynn. one of governor brewer's visors. and he will us tonight, explicitly, that the brewer campaign had advertised with kpho in the past but they decided to stop doing so as a result of the quote credibility of the journalism on that network. asked if that was a reference to the investigative journalism that has been done on that network about jan brewer, mr. could have lynn acknowledged that it was. to be clear, jan brewer's campaign inform us in no uncertain terms that they advertise on the other two net fwhorks phoenix but they decided to stop advertising on the cbs station because of them investigating governor brewer. that comes directly from governor brewer's campaign. asked specifically if governor brewer herself was involved in that decision, in the decision to stop advertising on kpho as retaliation for the their investigations into the governor, her campaign manager will us that miss brewer is clued into everything they do there. he told us, quote, absolutely. it is her campaign. in addition to ending its advertisements in retaliation for that com
